  1. Was hoping to have changed my speakers by now, but because of you know what, not been possible, so bought the Luxman DA 06 DSD DAC and now my mind keeps going back to speakers! Mac

  7. Review of the new Nova range from SF, top of the range model https://www.hifinews.com/content/sonus-faber-olympica-nova-v-loudspeaker?utm_source=phpList&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=HiFi+Forsale+Newsletter&utm_content=HTML
  8. **************** Thanks for the reply. Yes, been looking into it a bit more and looks like that's the answer. Just wasn't expecting that, never noticed it with my RME DAC. Mac
  9. A little advice please... I've noticed that music is louder when playing CD player whilst connected direct to my amp... using balanced cables between and using digital XLR from player to DAC which is quieter. Mac
  10. ************ I'd be the same PP Mac
  11. Very hard to say, as I think I've got to a point where each piece of kit compliments the other so well, it would be wrong to choose one. However, saying all that, it would be extremely hard to better my Electrocompaniet EMC 1UP CD player. even though I don't use it as much as I used to, I would never part with it. Mac

  13. Already owning Accuphase kit, I had an idea of what to expect from Luxman gear... as said above, second to none build quality and the two Company's sound signature are similar too, so I was a little concerned about adding to the already rich tonal balance of the amps, worried it might be a bit overkill. I needn't have worried. It's like the soundstage has been given a polish, giving an even more vivid sense of depth and detail and my main worry was how the base would be affected... no problem at all, tighter if anything. Also, vocals are more fullsome, more like my old Class A Sugden. For those of you who like their string sections, you will be astonished how good they sound. A beautifully tonally balanced DAC... don't get me wrong though, for anyone looking for a great DAC under the 1K mark, I would still recommend the RME ADI2 in a heartbeat. Only had the machine on 24 hours so far, so once it's got more time stocked up could well sound even better, not sure how though! Mac
  14. ***************** Did I read correctly, have you sold your Luxman DAC? Mac
  15. Yep, see bottom of prev page. Mac
